    Classical players vary in their choice of picks. It is true that some prefer thinner and pointier picks but there is not universal pick just as there is not one kind of mandolin that classical...

    I have never played a Loar mandolin but if I were going that route I would spend a few extra $$ and call the Mandolin Store - They will be honest and treat your fairly. You will also get a mandolin...

    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    Volume is important, but not so much for "being heard" as for increased dynamic range. Playing beautifully, using dynamic range to play more expressively, is the goal. I have found that doing this,...

    Improvising

    I'm at the point where I can play most any fiddle tune off a site like mandolessons.com in a couple of days, and I have quite a few licks I can throw in here and there at the end of the vocal line of...
  11. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I don't know. I think that the instrument is deceptively difficult though it sounds simple and the throat singing is not at all easy to master. Try it sometime.

    Real-time feedback is great, no doubt. The loop between output-feedback-input is instantaneous.

    To me, recorded feedback has some distinct advantages over real time, even with a longer wait for...

    Also, if it's challenge you want, there are plenty of things to do with instruments you already have. One of the greatest challenges / hardest instruments for me was flamenco guitar.

    Re: Songwriting

    Pick a key and focus on a number as home base in order to get different modes for a melody. If you need chords to fit what you come up with I have a chart for that, I got a million of 'em!
